On Saturday, February 10th, the PBR Mid-Atlantic ProCase will add to our pro coverage and give scouts the first look of the new year into the 2018 draft class along with select 2019 and 2020 grads

The Super 60, held in Chicago at the beginning of February, has become one of the more well attended pro showcases on the circuit, simply due to the caliber of players in attendance. We have seen more than 100 professional scouts year after year at the Super 60. Similarly, the ProCase will bring draft potential candidates from our area into one location to showcase their abilities in front of the professional scouting community. 

The event will be held in Henrico, VA at the TSI Training Center, which includes a full sized infield that will allow for open hitting and plenty of room for defensive evaluations.

Since its inception in 2005, the Prep Baseball Report has evolved into one of the country’s biggest and most respected independent scouting services, with a singular focus of providing comprehensive coverage in every state. Now, more than 850 colleges and pro scouts subscribe to the Prep Baseball Report services.  We take great pride in providing the most thorough and comprehensive high school baseball coverage in each state.

We continue our breakdown of the talent who will be in attendance.

Scouting Report

Maryland Scout Blog 3/23/17

Throwing out of a 3/4 slot he showed quick arm speed with a loose action. His delivery was controlled with some rhythm and he created a good downward tilt with his hips and shoulders. He pitches with some effort. His fastball was consistently 84-87 on a cold, windy day with some run. He topped out at 89 a few times, most noticeably in the top of the fifth to complete striking out the side. His change-up continues to be his best secondary pitch with near fastball arm speed at 71-73. His Change-up showed good, late fade and seemed to have developed more sink to compliment the lateral movement. His BB was 71-73 with power, 11/5 action although his command of this pitch was erratic. One of his biggest improvements was his time to the plate from the stretch, cutting it down into a more managable 1.3-1.5 to the plate.

3.8.16 - 2018 RHP Stephen Pelli also made his second appearance of the spring, pitching 85-88 hitting 89 once. He pitches with some effort with a shorter, quick arm action and fast arm speed. Got under the fastball at times, but showed good downhill action and some sink on fastball. Secondary stuff shows nice action and shape.  Breaking ball has tight rotation and late break with 11/5 action. Change up has hard dive to the pitch.  Keeps fastball arm speed on both pitches.

2.21.15 - Stephen Pelli is a 5-foot-10 180-pound RHP/3B.  He has a solid frame that will get stronger.  He has average hands and a clean exchange, throwing from a high ¾ arm slot with short arm action.  His infield velocity was 78 mph. He hits from a balanced setup with a sweeping swing and average balance throughout the swing.  His exit velocity was 80 mph showing some strength. Pelli projects well on the mound.  He throws from a high ¾ arm slot with quick arm speed and good arm action.  He has good rhythm in his clean delivery and throws with some effort.  His fastball has good late run with command at 84 mph.  He throws an 11/5 breaking ball that is early break with potential to get better.  He shows an advanced for his age feel for the changeup at 66-68 mph with fastball arm speed and good sink on the pitch.  Pelli will is an interesting prospect to follow and looks to be more advanced on the mound at this early age.  He should be an interesting player to follow.
